    After trying this pre-release procedure I had a blank screen on boot... there again I could find the libva1 package (404).
    So I removed them again for now.

    I may try building the libva1 from the sources.

    I'm using a Asus T91.

    temporary install script for lucid:

    Code:
    wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1338581/Gma500/scripts/poulsbo_lucid.sh && sh ./poulsbo_lucid.sh
    If gnome freezes check if "composite" is disabled in xorg.conf
    PS. 3D broken, video render broken.

    Well, quite a dissertation there , but I don't quite follow the argument of Intel getting burnt as badly or at all. What do you mean? Did they get stuck with useless pieces of hardware? I think not. There seems to be a clear pattern of crappy Intel graphics for Linux:
    gma500
    gma600
    Clarkdale
    Lucid - Intel i8xx
    Jaunty regression

    As you can see, by no means is gma500 an isolated incident. It should be clear by now that Intel graphics for Linux is a dead horse. Stop flogging it and move on.

    A little stuck, had some problems and weird experiences, but I think it is because I cant remove the previously installed psb-kernel-headers... I think it was also that package that caused a crash while running lucazades script

    I tried using
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --force-all -r psb-kernel-headers
    But I just get an error during removal (subprocess installed post-removal script returned error exit status 1)

    Ok got it running, pretty cool, but can't use it yet. Netbook launcher just displays as a white plane filling the screen. Every 30 seconds it vanishes showing the desktop background image for a few seconds.

    Upon starting processes using alt+f2 i can only type in those short background image intervals. Strangely the top bar still works perfectly.

    Removing for now until next update, thumbs up for your good work
